Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Now that was utterly rubbish. Well at least it saves an hour of my life from now on.

    Recorded it on Sky, but caught a bit whilst eldest was watching it. Stopped recording it, looks like I will have to keep watching the old reruns for now. One word RUBBISH. Come back Clarkson and co all is forgiven.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    To be honest, I think the whole thing had got a bit tired a while ago. Whilst it was an exceptionally good formula, they just kept repeating it in different places and it had got so samey that I was only going through the motions watching it anyway. I think the main reason many hadnt reached the same point as me was because it was like a comfy pair of slippers that nobody questioned. I think it was only a matter of time though.

    The new one was so much like the old that it was never going to appeal to people who didnt like old top gear and not good enough at it to appeal to those that just love clarkson & co.

    I do fear for it but you have to be careful not to judge anything based on episode one, sometimes even series one. If you look back at many great shows, the first series of 'clarksons top gear' wasnt properly slick yet, even the first series of only fools and horses wasnt great - I think today OFAH would not have made it to a second series.

    I think Matt Le Blanc had more potential than Chris Evans to be honest. He was more relaxed, more charismatic and able to be self deprecating more than Chris Evans.
